Exhibitions @ Gallery 1885

A great feature of the Camera Club is that it has its own attractive ground-floor gallery – Gallery 1885 – with high-quality exhibition lighting and hanging space for around 40 exhibition prints. Monthly exhibitions feature outstanding work by one or more members, plus ‘outside’ exhibitions of national standing, as well as members' open exhibitions and competitions.

Gallery 1885 is open to the public – you do not have to be a Club Member to enjoy our exhibitions.


To see our upcoming exhibitions please visit our blog or wait for announcements on the homepage.

DISTANT PRESENCE
DENNIS JOSÉ VILAÇA
​09 JUNE - 28 JUNE

Open View 13 June 7PM


As a photographer, Dennis is fascinated by the inherent tension between his subjects’ inner feelings of existence and how they consciously present to the world. He’s aware of how much of city life is staged and how cognisant people are of image; and how taking photographs in a studio setting can lend itself seamlessly to this. The larger the city, the more likely their natural state seems to contrast with their subjective consciousness.

In this series, Dennis explores the notion of a subject in the present, often unaware or unresponsive to the artificiality of self-depiction. Through time spent far from the overthinking realm of London, he explores a mix of ephemeral and natural moments. These moments can be focussed, joyous, contemplative, relaxed and unselfconscious.
